Faces for Fifty

As part of the 50th Anniversary celebrations we asked who had made a significant contribution to the University over the years.

The call for nominations resulted in a list of 83 individuals who were seen to have helped to make the University of York great: they have enhanced the experiences of staff, student and visitors to the University, as well as its global reputation.

This exhibition celebrates the contributions of those nominated through photography and quotes taken directly from the nominations.
